Thompson, 54, has been married to Greg Wise for 10 years and together they have a daughter Gaia, 13, and a son Tindyebwa Agaba, 26. "I've had so much bloody practice at crying in a bedroom, then having to go out and be cheerful, gathering up the pieces of my heart and putting them in a drawer," she said. But Branagh was having an affair with Bonham Carter, and up-and-coming actress at the time, which reportedly began after they met on the set of in which she discovers that her husband (Alan Rickman) might be cheating on her (see below).
On Monday morning he had a costume fitting, then intense rehearsals including ferocious and detailed fight scenes, before giving his first performance on Tuesday.Branagh grew close to Helena Bonham Carter when they co-starred in 1994 on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and Thompson later described the situation as "blood under the bridge".Now the Nanny Mc Phee actress, who later wed her Sense And Sensibility co-star Greg Wise, has suggested to TV Times that her own bossiness caused difficulties in her first marriage."Gaia is still young and these years are very precious," Thompson told the magazine."I was very lucky because I got three good films in a row and I could then get home before Gaia started her next term at school, which I have to be there for.
